Save water- are we doing enough?
Earth is the only known planet in this universe where life is possible only because of the availability of water and oxygen. Water is most important necessity of life for all the living beings on the earth. Without water no one can exist even for a day. We also know that there is very less percentage of clean water means drinking water available on the earth. So, we should not waste clean water and save it for future generations.
People working in different fields need water for different purposes such as farmers need water to grow crops, gardeners to water plants, industrialists for industry work, electricity plants to generate hydro-electricity, etc. So, we should save clean water for the wellness of our future generations and healthy life of water and wildlife animals. People at many places of the world are suffering water scarcity or completely lack of water in their regions. By 2050, India will be amongst the countries which will face acute water shortage. India is one of the countries worldwide facing huge level water scarcity today. Places in India like Rajasthan and some parts of Gujarat are facing water scarcity where women and girls of the houses cover a long distance on bare foot to just get a pot of water. In some cities like Bangalore people have to buy water bottles worth Rs. 25 to Rs. 30 to drink clean water. People face more problems during summer months when the daily need of water increases. Recently, it is studied that around 25% urban population lacks availability to clean drinking water. In some areas, the privatization of water bodies is the main reason of water scarcity.
There are different methods we can follow to save clean drinking water to deal with the water scarcity. Rain water harvesting is one of the most effective and suitable method among save water techniques. Afforestation is also best method as it reduces the surface runoff and recharges the ground water. It promotes underground water conservation. By practicing such methods we can conserve more water naturally and ensure the availability of it for future generations. We should take a pledge and make a lifelong motto of “Save water, save life, save earth”.We should teach simple methods of water saving to our children, women and other members of the family like turning off all the taps tightly after each use, using sprinklers to water the lawn, giving bath to pets in the lawn, repair of all the leaking pipes, harvesting rain water for purposes like watering plant, washing clothes, etc. We should also practice keeping the river (especially Ganga) water clean and safe for future use and safety of water animals.
Hands towards Needy Ones
Our very own L.M. Memorial Public School adopted a village recently as a part of celebration on the 50th anniversary of the school. It is located two hours away from our school. In that we are assigned to teach the children of that village. Students are being taken to teach the children of that village on a regular basis.
We go to that village by the transportation provided by our school. There we choose a tree or a library to make the children sit under the tree, and the students of higher classes teach the kindergarten and primary students about basic words, numbers, calculations, etc., and it is a great experience. The feeling of satisfaction that you get when you teach somebody and the fact that you could use your education to the benefit of others is all worth the hard work. We give them some social activities like cleaning the lakes, removing the plastic papers and cups on the road and explain to them the importance of cleanliness and hygiene and how if each one of them keep their own surroundings clean one day we would make a big difference. Students teach them to save the earth, save trees and save water. Each one of us carries some fruits or biscuits for the children as a ‘mid-day meal’. This also acts as a motivator for them.
The children are very eager and keen for learning new things and the interest that they show makes you even fonder of teaching them.
